Some jobs are more interesting then others

Recommended Posts

This is an "Historic" grand hotel that was active 1927 - 1957. It was then used for other purpose before being boarded up in 2005. It has 7 levels plus a basement. It will be renovated into apartments. The guy who opened it up for me would not go inside, so I had the entire building to explore by myself. There were some areas that looked to dangerous to walk. I was hoping to see some ghost, but they must have checked out early.

What were you hired to do? 

If I were interested in developing that building into usable apartments, I'd start with a Capital Needs Assessment.

That is worth taking the day off and just doing what you want in there.  I have been fortunate to be able to explore many buildings in the Chicago area by myself and get paid by others to do it.

Nice photo record of a "day in the life of an inspector".
